    Greetings, dprenevost !

    You may need to make the settings change in MS Word.  Go to MS Word options menu, Spell Check, and toggle the "ignor original message text in reply or forward".  Turn it off. Close Word and Outlook. Open Word. Turn it back on.

    Best wishes!

    If you cannot find the particular setting, toggle the entire spell checker.  Disable the spell check. Close Word and Outlook. Open Word. Turn it back on.

    If no joy, reinstall the spell checker in MS Office.

    Hi dprenevost,

    Are you using Outlook or Word as your email editor?  If you're using Word, try switching to Outlook.  I've read reports of this problem cropping up, but only when Word is the editor.  It's another in a long list of reason not to use Word as your email editor in Outlook.
